I have been using NGP VAN for the last six years in a campaign setting.

Pros: VAN gives excellent access to voter information and is a great tool for creating phone banks and other lists.

Cons: I struggle with clipping turf in VAN. The process is nonintuitive and difficult. The mapping feature does not give the user enough information to clip turf correctly.

Pretty much a must use system for campaign finance disclosure

Pros: easy to have multiple different designations in the account. Easy to import large contact sets and good customer support for backend data edits

Cons: User interface is not the best and confusing to first time users. Hard to share reports with other users. Reports are very limited in what you can pull.

I am a contributor to many campaigns. I receive NGP VAN generated materials.

Pros: It is formula generated. I recognize that it solves numerous problems for the candidate, It obviously provides ease of use and scalability.

Cons: I am the potential donor/supporter. Once I pull the switch, I am on NGP VAN's mailing list forever. This list is evidently tied in with Act Blue. I have received as many as 40 solicitations a day with Act Blue's fingerprints on them. I routinely block further solicitations from that candidate no matter how worthwhile the individual's candidacy. I really feel as if I am being manipulated; I hate it.

Overall: As the recipient of solicitations, I receive absolutely sterile, predictable solicitations with no way to establish meaningful personal contact with the candidate. I hate the tie-in with Act Blue. I feel as if I am being manipulated.

Easy to use with little training

Pros: I love the intuitive design of the program. Also, its a must buy for any campaign. It is easy to get started with and to train people with it.

Cons: The system sometimes crashes unexpectedly. However, these problems can usually be solved quickly. There aren't very many cons!

Love Van. Easy to use and works great.

Pros: Call lists are easy to make, as are walking lists. This is a great tool for campaigning. Able to target voters easily.

Cons: It's unfortunate that in non-partisan races they will restrict usage if a candidate isn't 100% liberal. Other programs are not as good as Van.

Pros: Ease of voter contact and the navigation between canvassing and phone results.

Cons: The difference between 'my voters' and 'my campaign'

Overall: I've used NGP VAN in a variety of settings and capacities and it offers some of the best voter networking software available. Online phone banks are extremely easy with VAN. The only real issue I have is that it's often difficult to transfer between 'My Voters' and 'My Campaign'.
